Wild guess: hold down the left Alt key when you try to move the window (no guarantees, but it just might work)

Bricking? Do you mean turning into a brick?

If you have another mouse, test with that. It's a quick, easy, and inexpensive way to determine whether the problem is hardware or not.

My old mouse began acting erratic and unpredictable recently... I solved it by buying a new mouse.
